Tonia & Richie: wedding in Athens

Tonia and Richie, a lovely couple living in London, exchanged their vows in Agios Nikolaos church in Ilioupoli, Athens.
His English family joined her Greek family in a beautiful ceremony full of laughter and emotion.

Although it was an overall rainy day, we were rewarded with a break in the clouds at the end of the wedding and a lovely sunset.

Take a look at some of  beautiful couple’s wedding photos.

In June 2018, I had the pleasure to present a paper I worked on with Cultural Manager Violetta Tsitsiliani:
“Suitcases: A comment on voluntary travel vs necessary dislocation”.

Photographs I had taken of different types of travelers (tourists, marine workers, migrants and refugees) in Greek ports were used as a means to examine the semiotics of suitcases. These ports constitute a common space that holds a different meaning for each user, although the use is the same for all: travel. The essential difference lies in that of choice or need to travel through this port.

“One advantage of photography is that it’s visual and can transcend language.”
